Slow Magnetoacoustic Waves in Two-Ribbon Flares View all abstracts by submitter

Valery Nakariakov   Submitted: 2011-02-24 11:05

We demonstrate that disturbances observed to propagate along the axis of the arcade in two-ribbon solar flares at the speed of a few tens km s-1, well below the Alfvén and sound speeds, can be interpreted in terms of slow magnetoacoustic waves. The waves can propagate across the magnetic field, parallel to the magnetic neutral line, because of the wave-guiding effect due to the reflection from the footpoints. The perpendicular group speed of the perturbation is found to be a fraction of the sound speed, which is consistent with observations. The highest value of the group speed grows with the increase in the ratio of the sound and Alfvén speeds. For a broad range of parameters, the highest value of the group speed corresponds to the propagation angle of 25-28 degrees to the magnetic field. This effect can explain the temporal and spatial structure of quasi-periodic pulsations observed in two-ribbon flares.
